Boston Pops on Nantucket

Saturday, August 8, 2020

The 2019 Boston Pops on Nantucket was attended by more than 7,000 of our friends and neighbors who turned out once again to support Nantucket Cottage Hospital at Jetties Beach during the 23rd edition of this community event.

Thank you to everyone who attended, as well as the many volunteers, vendors, hospital staff, town agencies and public safety personnel who helped us pull off the island’s biggest event of the year. We anticipate that the 2019 Boston Pops on Nantucket will have raised more than $2 million to support the general operations of our hospital. Thank you, Nantucket!

Save the date for next year: Saturday, August 8, 2020!

History of the Event

In 1997, one of Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s most ardent supporters, Kathryn Clauss, had an idea. She wanted to bring the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra to Nantucket to host a benefit concert for the hospital. No one believed she could pull it off, but with a lot of hard work and help from friends, she did.
